Toronto flash mob planned for Taylor Swift’s new ‘Red’ album

A Toronto high school student has planned a flash mob to celebrate the launch of Taylor Swift’s new album Red.

The album was released on Monday and Julie Eaton already has her hands on a copy.

“I bought it this morning,” Eaton, 16, told CityNews.ca.

“My favourite song is All Too Well. It’s about memories about a guy she used to date. I was like crying downtown when I heard it,” she said.

The flash mob – a large group of people who meet suddenly in a public space – would be “easy, free and really fun,” Eaton said.

The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. at Nathan Phillips Square.

“Everyone is meeting at 4 p.m. at a different location so no one knows we’re there,” she said.

Eaton said about 25 to 30 people are expected to attend and similar events will be held Monday in Halifax and Chicago.

Earlier this month, Swift stopped by Citytv to promote the album. She spoke to Breakfast Television’s Dina Pugliese about the album and inspiration behind some of her songs.

Entertainment City: Taylor Swift, a half-hour interview with the pop star, will air at 7 p.m. Monday on Citytv.
